Good job!  And yes, making your own diapers is way addictive (said the woman who got so obsessed that she now has her own snap press)!  They aren't free, but my two absolute favorite diaper patterns are Chloe Toes (requires a snap press or snap pliers) and Darling Diapers Unlimited, which has every possible diaper variation you can think of plus exhaustive instructions.

Brilliant!  I shall be borrowing some of these ideas.

It says dry-clean, but it machine washes and dries just fine.  I'll caveat that statement by saying that I primarily use it as inner fabric on my daughter's pocket diapers.  That said, they get washed in hot water, dried and even bleached occasionally and the suedecloth seems to be doing just fine with no fading.  Obviously, you should wash and dry a swatch first before making it into a garment to see if you like the way it behaves.

Yep, wool and polyester fleece are great diaper covers!  Plus, you can make pants that double as diaper covers.  Old sweaters are great to recycle into covers, and the arms can be used to make pants/longies.  Here are a couple of links with free patterns: http://katrinassqs.blogspot.com/ (there is a column on the right of the page with pattern links)  and http://marthasworld76.blogspot.com/2007/05/how-to-make-wool-soaker-from-recycled.html.  You can make diapers out of just about any cotton material.  Flannel is fabulous, as are old t-shirts.  Good luck!

Very cute!  I love the circles and rickrack.  Hmmm...now I know what I'll be doing with some of my crazy foldover elastic stash!

Still need to take and post pics, but I adjusted the stitch count for worsted weight and made a lovely burnt orange version in malabrigo (rhodesian is the color).  It is definitely my new favorite winter hat!  Here are my malabrigo/worsted weight adjustments if anyone is interested: CO 88 stitches, using US5 needles for the band and switching to US8s for the body.  Also, I began the final decreases a little differently.  Around 48 stitches, I made smaller bobbles - p1, k1 - on the 1st row, then began k2tog following that 4-row section.  This made for a very smooth final decrease. 

Thanks for posting this pattern, BTW!!!

Still waiting for my issue...I really like the swing jacket!  I think it could be just the ticket for my preggo belly and I may even have yarn in the stash that could work!
